How do I submit the printed PDF request form?

When should I request my transcripts be sent to my transfer school?
You a may choose to have your transcripts sent at any time, but OTC will not hold your request until a future date. If you have classes that are currently in progress, the receiving institution may mark the transcript as incomplete because they will not have your final semester grades and/or conferred degree.
Students needing either their final semester grades or conferred degree from OTC should utilize the Student Academic Calendar for transcript posting dates and plan to order their official transcripts on or after the respective posting dates.
It is always recommended that you speak with an admissions counselor at your transfer school to determine if your transfer institution recommends that you also submit a copy of your incomplete official transcripts.
Why are my final grades or conferred degree are missing from my ordered transcript?
Final grades and conferred degrees are available by a specified date at the end of each semester. If you ordered your transcript prior to those dates, some or all of the information could be missing.
Students are encouraged to check the Student Academic Calendar each semester for final grades and degree posting dates to ensure that the desired information has been posted to their transcript before being sent to their recipient school.
If you find that you have ordered your transcript earlier than the posting dates, please place a new transcript order.
How can I verify what information will be included on my transcript and sent to my recipient?
The simplest way to see the transcript that your recipient will receive is to view your unofficial transcript. Your unofficial transcript will display the same information that is generated on your official transcript in real time.
Current students may view their unofficial college transcript through their myOTC portal. Please see ‘Unofficial Transcript Requests’ for more information.
Students are also encouraged to check the Student Academic Calendar to ensure that they are not ordering their transcripts before for final grades and conferred degrees have posted each semester.
How long will it take my transcripts to be delivered to the recipient?
Transcript requests are processed within 1-2 business days. Depending on the location of the recipient, we recommend estimating 3-5 business days for delivery.
Please note that OTC cannot accept responsibility for delivery delays by USPS or delays caused by incorrect or insufficient addresses. It is recommended that students thoroughly check the recipient address before placing their transcript order and double checking for typos.
Students needing immediate delivery are encouraged to utilize the National Student Clearinghouse.
Why was my transcript not delivered to the recipient?
Many factors can contribute to the delay or failure of a transcript delivery. If your mailed transcript order has not arrived at the requested mailing address within 7-10 business days. Please contact email@example.com so that we can check on your order.
